frown Frustrating problem with no help

2011 F150, 56,000miles. Had trouble with the brakes in the past (about a year ago). 2 weeks ago got 2 new rotors, new calipers, new brakes in the front of the truck. Thought all was good, until driving long distance (about 1 hour) and when I turn the steering wheel to the left and right, I feel the grinding and shaking again and some other weird noise, like it is straining. When I put it in reverse there is a thick clicking sound. Going straight is fine the brakes are working good. Don't know what is going on. I don't like the Ford dealership here (Colorado Springs, CO) because they keep coming up with excuses as to what caused the problem, instead of what is wrong with it. They told us the brakes went bad because we drove it through rain and mud. The battery is foaming everywhere because the weather here caused the battery to crack. I'm afraid they are going to tell me that I can't drive it long distances anymore. What is the use of having a truck then. Could someone please help. Thanks.

Re: Frustrating problem with no help

A foaming battery would be caused by a rapid charge or discharge unless there's impurities in it. As far as the sound, I wouldn't drive it anywhere until you find it. It sounds to me like a wheel bearing issue.
